DeKAY SOLDIERS'LETTERS The following is a very interesting letter from Sam Mulville, who is in the navy and at the present time is at Key West in Florida: Key West, Fla., Oct 28, 1918. Dear mother: I was becoming sort of anxious about everybody, ceived any letters from - any one for many moons. We just returned from a sruise down to the Danish West Indies. This is the isle we bought from the Danes. They are very pretty all alone cut there in the sea, and the sight of them, after a few days on the sea with its montonous expanse of gray horizon, is very restful and pleasing to one's jaded feelings. The Danes have done a lot of good work earlier in their first effort at colonization, but they were to, far away from the mother country to prosper very well. The same condi tion exists in the British possessions they too are just merely possessions. Very little effort has been made to improve the native or increase his ability to produce either in agricul A few whites own nearly everything worth while The negro is more of an economic slave here than in our country. A good deal of the fine sponges that are used thruout the world come from around here. But the negro dives for them, cleans them, prepares them for market in fact nearly everything, yet he don't seem to have, but little, his existance is just founded on how much the white men feel li«ie throwing him. All these islands down here want to come in under Uncle Sam's wing and no doubt it would be of benefit to them. If we had them, not many years would pass before the lot of natives would be improved. On the return we chased a Brit ish tramp steamer for thirty-six hours, until the old man manouvered our ship so that the tramp had to helave to, or go on the beach. It seems that wireless warning had been sent out to look out for a Ger man submarine, masquerading as an American gunboat, with false sup erstructive covering her real idenity. We raided the tramp hull about two bells of the mid watch. The skip per flashed the allied signal of recog nition, but we received no answer so he had all hands called to quarters and we manned the battery and stood by to await developments. We laid on her course like a hand on the trail, all that night and the following day. About sundown we were close enough to make out the men about the decks. She flew the British ensign, had no guns and ap peared to manned by negroes. About an hour later the old man had her between him and the beach. It was either .leave to" or go on the beach, so he heaved to. We lowered a boat and went over. She was good Britian all right, out of Manzanillo with sugar. All the crew were greasy Hindoos, as crummy a gan as I ever hope to see. The Cap. and a couple of Yank quart ermasters were the only whites in sight. About six hours of Key West a tropical hurricane hit us. Wind howled thru the rigging like a de mon, going over a hundred miles an hour. It rained, but the pain was salt, the gale swept the water smooth now and then picking some of it up and leaving it on the deck. We lost all the scrub and wash clothes on the cloths line, tore all the lumber oft the deck house and made everybody hang on to keep from go ing with it. I was on watch at the time and I went forward to "pass the word" to relieve the wheel and lookouts, I opened my mouth to speak, but that's as far as I got, that gale just pushed every word back down and I had a little effort in closing my mouth. When a fellow starts down the deck and the wind turns him around a few times, he then fully realizes what nature can do with her forces when she goes on a tare. We made port without much trouble as the sea was not heavy, the gale sort of flattened it out. WFwere four hours late at that in a two hour gale. The old ship Is camoflaged up to a million now and looks like an African Zebra pulling a Barnum and Bialy curcus wagon, but when she is nearly hull down on the horizon and the mirage gets in its work ,one can not tell whether she is the ghost of the Flying Dutchman or just a Bahama Conch a flishing. At that she's got nothing on these Cuban Senioretas. The art of camoflage has reached a high degree of excel lence among them. At times so ar tistic is their make-up that one can not tell with any certainty whether the object of his gaze is a Castillean woman of high lineage or a dusky daughter of Ham. '• he Spaa.sn flu did not get me altho I wished more^than once that it had. Over two-thirds of the ship's company went to a shore a sick boy with it. We lost chief boatswain's mate, a cox'an and a chief mechen ist's mate. Nearly all are back now, just a few of the worst ashore. For over two weeks I was the only petty officer left on board. There were eight seamen left out of the two divisions. We kept things going pretty well, but it was Mulville this and Mulville have this done, until I felt like jumping over the side. I am in pretty physical condition, weigh 175 and very little fat. These tropics are not any to good for a fel low at the best, but I don't aim to put my health out. I am a very poor money saver, but when it comes to taking care of my body I have great efficiency. I pull starboard stroke in the raceboat and we skipped away from everybody in this fleet. Our base ball team has won twenty games out of twenty-three played. We may play the Havana team before long. Cubans play some good ball. I never will get the foot ball bug out of my system I guess.' Some of we fellows get together some times and talk high school atheletics until one sure wishes he were back home and there were no Germans to bust up a peaceful detail. There are some pretty line fellows abroad this ship, but the ginks from the naval reserve are mostly bums and afraid to give everything to the servicn. Now and then one will find Haven't re ture or commerce. TURNING RATS TO ACCOUNT Japanese Authorities Anticipate Sub stantial Revenue From Leather Made From Hides of Pests. In the neighborhood of Aomori, Ja pan, the hides of squirrels are tanned and used as carpets, neckcloths and for other purposes. This hds sug gested to Doctor Hasegawa Kiyonari, head of the Hasegawa hospital at Osaka, who is a member of the Osaka municipal assembly, the possibility of turning to good account the hides of the nuiyerous rats bought by the mu nicipal authorities, In view of the great advance In the price of hides and leather. Doctor Hasegawa ap proached the authorities with the pro posal, which was favorably received. They accordingly tanncJ the skins of two rats and sought the opinion of dealers as to whnt the leather would sell for. The dealers estimated that the skin of one rat was worth 20 sen in its raw condition. The public health authorities are now devising special means of disinfecting and tanning raA, skins. It is estimated that a great sum could have been obtained by tanning the hides of one-third of the rpts bought by the Osaka municipal au thorities during the last twenty years To Pollyfox. Put down a red mark to the senate's credit for Introducing the word "polly fox." Here we have pussyfooting with characteristics more subtle even than silence. If one pussyfoots, well and good; he does not disturb, and It may reasonably be argued that only those engaged in evil doing or suffering from nerves object to those who come upon one noiselessly. The pussyfooter may have no ob jectionable purpose In pussyfooting. He may even be amiably determined not to distract one engaged In ponder ing a painful problem, as whether 11 Is better to earn an income and be taxed, or to escape both and play golf. But, as we understand It, to pollyfox Implies a sly purpose. An angel child possessed of a chunk of Ice, with Its lovely orbs fixed on the Inviting space between Its papa's neck and collar, will pollyfox even if it never heard ol the word. There Is much In the contemplation of politics which makes to welcome the verb "to pollyfox." — New York Sun. Well, That's Different While high-priced lawyers argued wrathfully for their clients over the ownership of a little white Eskimo dog the animal In controversy was brought Into court In a sack by a negro, dead. Instantly the contestants changed ■Ides. This was at Atlanta. "Give It to that woman there," ex claimed Mrs. M. M. Brazell, who bad sworn out a possessory warrant for a Spitz dog before Judge L. Z. Rosser. "No, give It to her, I want her to have it," retorted Mrs. Anna Lee, who was contesting the possessory war rant The confused negro left the dog and retreated. * Judge Rosser gave the dead dog to Mrs. Brazell. A 72-Year-Old Messenger Boy. Anbnrn, N. Y., has a seventy-two year-old messenger boy. Although re tired from active work, he decided he could do some war service by taking some young man's place with the tdo graph company. "I have had some amusing experi ences," he remarked recently. "I an swered one call, and the man said: 'Are you from the Western Union?* I replied that I was. 'Well,' he said, T wanted a boy, not the president of the company.' Therp was another call to the St. Cloud and I went. The man said: 'Are you a boy?' But before I could answer another man remarked facetiously, 'He was when you called.'

I haven't had a letter from John or Nod for some time, wrote them telling them to show a little speed, dash and accurancy and shoot me a line now and then. That was a very peacful letter you wrote. From your son, SAM. The following are various letters received by Mrs. E. A. Burkman at Firth, Idaho, from her son, Joel, who Is over In France and at the present time is In the hospital after being engaged in the battle. Somewhere In France, Oct. 5, 1913. Dear Mother: Again some time has elapsed since I wrote you, but have been busy fighting Boches and to reciprocate they took a whack at me ultimately put me In the hospital. I am mtn'.s my right Index finger and have half a dozen punctures from a "hand gre nade'' which they exploded right be fore me. Am receiving the best of care and am feeling fine considering. Sincerely your .son, JOEL A. BURKMAN. Oct. 12, 1918. Dear Mother: Have been in the hospital over a week now and am getting along fine. The wounds in my legs, forehead and BIG DRIVE STARTS TODAY Chairman John G. Brown, of the united war work campaign, desires to warn all people not to expect war expenses to stop just because firing has ceased, nor to expect that we can keep the boys comfortable over there on less expense since the enemy's guns are silenced. Since "there is only one thing worse than a great victory, and that is a great defeat," it follows that the drive to raise money to keep up the morale of our boys in the awful period of policing the wreck of the world and relieving the distress of starving and shivering millions, must be carried thru on .schedule time and at high tide of generous ity. Other armies will be mustered out to go home to their families from whom they have been sep arated for years; but our men, fresh and vigerous and representing the world's epitone of honor and chivalry, will stay to feed the hungry, protect the weak, clothe the shivering, comfort and cheer the broken-hearted, and apply in practical application the principle of the brotherhood of man. AMERICA WILL THIS WEEK furnish the funds to visualize that sacred saying LIBERTY ENLIGHTENING THE WORLD" (< and History for a Thousand Years will hold no finer records than the story of how America rose to the occasion at the close of this war, making practical the golden rule, the Christian principle and demonstrating true Democracy. .

Guess you will have to save that Thanks giving turkey for Christmas if you want us boys to eat with you. But the way the Boches are running now I shouldn't be surprised if something will snap before them. My address for the present Is Base Hospital No. 26, A. P. O. 785, A. E. F. I'expect I'll be there until I can receive an answer from you. We are having quite nice weather here this fall. It is a little cool and quite a bit of rain, but not at all bad. We all hope It will continue so that the drive may go on as long as possible. Must close now, hoping this will find all well and that I'll hear from you shortly. Sincerely your son, JOEL A. BURKMAN. Oct. 18, 1918. Dear Mother: Just got my clothes today and have been out walking around a little, and it sure feels good to be around again. Am enclosing an address slip for a Xmas package. Now I am quite certain that I'll never go back to my outfit again, so It Is very proble matical just when I can or will re any package you might send, how ever, you can send one If you wish, and someone will get it some time, and the Lord knows it will be wel come.

One man paid up and said to stop the paper. He didn't want it. He did not have any use for a uselesa paper. Another man wrote that he en joyed the paper very much, and prized it sufficiently to preserve and hind them. He had missed a copy or two and asked for the back num bers so his file would be complete. The third man in the list *of un usual letters said he was glad to pay up arrears and a year in advance, as the paper had been satisfactory to him and had saved him several times the cost of the paper by not joining the Nonpartisan league. Other comments frequently made that the writer wants his paper con tinued because we do so much to aid the farmer. Others stop their papers because we are against the farmer. Still others stop theirj be cause we are against the Nonparti san league, and some new orders come in because we are against the leaders of the league.
